Professor Ernst Burgschmidt is a well established professor of English language and linguistics and history of English and medieval studies.  He has taught at the universities of Erlangen,  Brunswick and Wurzburg.

Understanding these aspects is necessary for extending and intensifying mutual relations.  The emphasis on tonight’s lecture is more on Irish and German-speaking peoples and less on political units and borders.
